Experimental study of locally loaded timber in compression perpendicular to the grain
TypeArticles dans des revues avec comité de lecture
Since the test method for compression strength perpendicular to the grain was changed from a partial area to a full area loading test, strength values for softwood in EN 338 were significantly reduced. Consequently, a change in Eurocode 5 was necessary to ensure an equivalent resistance level in compression perpendicular to the grain. Experimental results are presented with wood in compression perpendicular to the grain. A numerical model is also presented. This model was used to establish a rule of calculation proposed at the P21A-Committee of the technical and construction equipment standardization office (BNTEC).

PAŁUBICKI, Bartosz; MARCHAL, Rémy; BUTAUD, Jean-Claude; DENAUD, Louis; BLERON, Laurent; COLLET, Robert; KOWALUK, Grzegorz (Springer-Verlag, 2010)In the present paper, a novel method for veneer checks measurement and description based on digital image analysis is evaluated. According to this method, the camera is located sideways to the veneer allowing for viewing ...

The effect of log heating temperature on the peeling process and veneer quality: beech, birch, and spruce case studies DUPLEIX, Anna; DENAUD, Louis; BLÉRON, Laurent; MARCHAL, Rémy; HUGHES, Mark (Springer, 2013)Heating green-wood prior to peeling is necessary to improve both peeling process and quality of veneer. This study investigates optimum heating temperatures by soaking of beech, birch and spruce. Experiments have studied ...
Wood peeling process monitoring: a comparison of signal processing methods to estimate veneer average lathe check frequency DENAUD, Louis; BLERON, Laurent; EYMA, Florent; MARCHAL, Rémy (Springer, 2012)Experienced peeling operators are able to adjust the settings of their device by hearing the sound coming from the process. Based on this idea, a research program was undertaken to evaluate the possibility of using acoustic ...
